Subject: [PATCH 14/17] sh: get rid of superfluous __GFP_REPEAT
Date: Mon, 30 May 2016 11:14:56 +0200
Message-ID: <1464599699-30131-15-git-send-email-mhocko@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1464599699-30131-1-git-send-email-mhocko@kernel.org>

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

__GFP_REPEAT has a rather weak semantic but since it has been introduced
around 2.6.12 it has been ignored for low order allocations.

PGALLOC_GFP uses __GFP_REPEAT but {pgd,pmd}_alloc allocate from
{pgd,pmd}_cache but both caches are allocating up to PAGE_SIZE
objects. This means that this flag has never been actually useful here
because it has always been used only for PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY requests.
